SAP has taken much learning from APO and has used that to develop a truly customized tool to completely manage end-to-end Supply Chain processes. In my opinion, this “Modular” approach provides customers with a tool which is dedicated to their unique business environment and needs.
SAP IBP enables an organization to bring all its S&OP process together using the same data, reporting and execution to one source. One source to plan, control and monitor all activities with real time updates and integrated with financial data transforming it to decision making information
SAP IBP has many modules:
Supply Chain Control Tower à Providing End to End visibility & alerts
IBP for Sales and operations à Strategic & tactical decision making process
IBP for Demand à Demand sensing and Statistical analysis

Supported with Tools like SAP JAM, Fiori and ever user-friendly Microsoft Excel — it has the power to transform your business process and take you to the next level of business operations.
